Trivia

Although set in the fictional nation of Tazbekistan, the series borrows heavily from real life personalities in Central Asia. The behavior of Prince Mark, Duke of Bath (Tom Hollander), including his speech criticizing the left-wing press in the UK and their investigation of business dealings in Tazbekistan, is remarkably similar to a 2008 visit to Kyrgyzstan by Prince Andrew, Duke of York, where he criticized the left-learning Guardian newspaper. The Tazbeki dictator's daughter Fergana (Lydia Leonard) also shares many similarities with Gulnara Karimova, daughter of the president of Uzbekistan, including an amateur music career and controversial party-girl public image.

Realistic, funny ... more, please!
28 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As a former member of the British Diplomatic Service I found this series ticked a lot of boxes. I recognised a number of the characterisations as being similar to people I had come across in my own career, and the balance of realistic scenarios and humour was cleverly done. I found myself empathising with several of the characters in the Embassy who struggled to maintain a semblance of normal life amid conflicting, usually urgent and sometimes dangerous, calls on their time. Reviewer journalist1 clearly has a different interpretation of "politically correct" than me. The programme deliberately poked fun at institutions and individuals, from the British Royal Family to the ruling clique of the semi-fictitious country where it is set. Of course there were errors - the Union Jack regularly being flown upside down, for example, something that the producers should really have got right - and it had to be a bit "over-the-top" to be funny, but overall it was an amusing but realistic peek into the world of modern diplomacy at the day-to-day level. I hope there will be another series.
